Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies…

After an inspirational visit to the Daylesford Chocolate Mill, here is my family favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe. This time though, I have used gluten-free self-raising flour, instead of regular self-raising flour, and the result was amazing!

One bite is never enough 🙂

120g butter

½ cup caster sugar

½ cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla paste

1 ¾ cup gluten free self-raising flour

½ cup of raw organic cocoa

½ tsp of baking soda

pinch of salt

½ cup chocolate chips

¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)



  • Pre-heat oven to 170˚C
  • Chop or crush walnuts (if using)
  • Chop butter into small cubes and place in a large bowl with white and brown sugars. With an electric beater, beat mixture until creamy
  • Crack egg into a small bowl, add vanilla paste and lightly beat with a fork, add the egg to the creamed mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined
  • Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt over the mixture
  • Add chocolate chips and walnuts if using and mix well
  • Using a spoon, scoop golf ball sized portions of the mixture and place on a baking tray, about 5cm apart
  • Bake in oven for 10 -12 minutes or until golden
  • Remove biscuits and allow to cool on a wire rack
  • Store in air tight container when cool.
